    Can anyone recommend a good and inexpensive electrician in North east New Jersey?

    I'm trying to get an idea of what it will cost me to install a nema 14-50 or the HPWC.

    My brother-in-law is in NJ and got a quote of $1200 to install a NEMA 14-50. He said his electric breaker box is not in the garage. That's why it cost a little more.

    I'll take the link too please. I am scheduled to pick-up in Paramus on Thursday 12/15/16 and still haven't installed a NEMA 14-50 outlet in my garage. :eek:

    I used RF Electric (http://www.rf-electric.com/)

    They were recommended by Tesla along with 2 others and ended up being half the price of the others.

    They did a full run for me from an existing panel to the garage, new panel installed, then new panel to the HPWC.

    I used Gladiator Electric for the Tesla. Much better of the two that were recommended to me by Tesla. I also used Mike for some other jobs after. He was fantastic.

    I had a whole host of extra needs so not comparable. I was already overloaded on my existing 200 amp service and needed to upgrade to 300 amp. Also moved an entire panel and other stuff.

    I will say I've used two other electricians at my house (and a ton of other contractors/trades) and overall Mike had competitive prices and great service. One of only 2-3 people I've used over the years that I would recommend.

    Mike replaced certain lights at less than half the cost of previous quotes. I don't want to hijack this thread more than I have so ping me if you want more info.
